    Can we keep a track of them here to see if there’s any correlation

    Marvin definitely needs a skirt piece. To me it always reminded me of a Roman warrior skirt and it sticks out a lot
  3. Thanks @Jim I’ve given my opinion, perhaps a little different to some on here but if we all wrote the same that would be boring.

    I’ve seen the posts on Instagram about the box layouts and even if this is true this is next to nothing useless info. The only time this is useful is when the big box is opened for the first time. Just think of all the people that would pick up an individual box look at it and put it back, they may not put it back in the same place. Or think of the shop worker who tidies the shelves and compresses all the boxes together to get rid of any gaps. I still think the tiles are going to be a nightmare to collect, if someone wants to be a completionist as 2 of the 3 tiles in each blind box are random!

    VIDIYO - Universal Music 2021

    Hi, I’ve been watching this thread as I wondered what this theme would be like. I think the figures are interesting and definitely in the realm of being “collectible”, but I’m not sure about a Lego product that is more about a mobile app than physical play. another concern I have for the collector with the CMF boxes is that it says 2 of the 3 tiles are random in each box. So even if there is a method of identifying the figures there’s no guarantee you’ll get the full set of tiles

  7. Great progress so far, although I beg to differ about your title. When you consider the price of the Defender when compared to the Sian I don’t think you can fault it, I think it’s one of the better Technic models in recent years. Also adding motors doesn’t necessarily make a model better, well at least in my opinion. looking forward for future updates on this In terms of images I use Flickr for my Lego builds and post the links for individual images in my posts. Very easy in the mobile app.

    Well I don’t think it’ll be the next “UCS” car as they’re every 2 years.

    Great looking bike. You managed some great shaping there and got the right balance with the colours (not too much red or black)
  10. @Jurss I just checked bricklink out of curiosity and it’s from a 1998/9 set with a robot
  11. I know I’m going to hate this thread so I’m going to try and leave this comment and then not return. I’m approaching 50 and love Technic (my main theme of choice). I love the Ultimate Supercars but now I’m in a phase where actually I’m switching to buying parts not sets to feed my habit and provide new bits for creating MOCs for TC competitions. The main reason is lack of space for storing stuff! It I do like some of the current sets, just don’t feel the need to buy them. But also my 9yr old nephew (I don’t have kids myself) is just on the transition into Technic. He got his first sets last year and is now enjoying both System and Technic. His System creations are fantastically random like all kids should do. His Technic interest at the moment is the smaller pullback sets, he just loves them. Remember Lego is just a plastic construction toy at the end of the day. <leaves thread>
  12. As they’re all injection molded parts I’d expect them to use something like Moldflow to design the tools. As to software for stress on the parts there are lots I’ve used Hyperworks, ABAQUS, Nastran, Radioss, LS-Dyna, PamCrash to name just a few in my career

    Is this correct?

    And if you’re talking pythagoras and Lego technic then you count the number of studs minus 1 for each length so to get a 3 4 5 triangle you actually need to use 4 5 6 as your beam lengths.
  14. Hi @Jim just seen this thread and I’ve got a question about the new gold shocks. Why are the pin and axle holes offset from the main line of force ? Why not create a long shock with an axle hole on the top end? We could then add a ball pin or a pin hole connector to the top for a variety of connections

    75192 - UCS Millennium Falcon 2017 MOD/MOC

    So I’ve finally decided to open my Falcon and get building. Something to break the boredom of working from home in a lockdown. I’ve built @efferman’s stand and so far I’m at the end of #2 bags. I understand that I can mount the model at the end of #4 bags. But I have a few Q’s I’m hoping people can answer. can I mount the model either way round on the stand. I’d love the have the model pointing to the right due to where it will sit on the desk. Or does it end up with the cockpit resting on the ground (or too close for comfort) is it obvious how / where to mount the model when I get to the end of #4? If not can someone give me some pointers/photos? has anyone made up covers to reduce the holes left by the removal of the landing gear when mounting to this stand? thanks
